Apple Number Bonds

Today we were visited by the Winnebago Boone County Farm Bureau for Ag in the Class.  They talked to us about the life cycle of an apple and how apples grow.  So were were not surprised when apples showed up in math today. 

Mrs. Wanke wanted to review number bonds with us.  We reviewed, PART, PART, WHOLE.  This reminds us that we put two numbers together to get our whole. We then discussed what happens if we know the whole and only one part!  Can we figure out the missing part?  YOU BET WE CAN!  Check out the pictures below of us working very hard to figure out the missing part of our number bonds. 

Giving a little dab after successfully figuring out that the missing part was 10. 

Some more happy dabbing!

Off to a Great Start!

We are working really hard at learning routines and expectations.  We also have been doing lots of review activities to make sure that we all have the same foundation before we hit the ground running. I am so excited to spend my days with this GREAT group of kiddos!

Today we played letter sound BINGO. Next week we will get our first spelling list and have our first spelling test. To make sure that we are reading for spelling we spent this week practicing our letter sounds.  We had lots of fun playing letter sound BINGO. 

In the afternoon we played Five in a Row.  We have been working really hard at learning number words.  We would take turns flipping over a number word card and finding that number on our game board. The first player to get five squares in a row, won! 

We also worked really hard at one of our first math journal entries. This entry was pretty tricky because it involved lots of cutting, gluing, and direction following.

The Classy Awards and the World Premier of the Wonderful Whales 2018-2019 Movie

Dear Parents,
This is one of my favorite and saddest events of the year. It is a time to celebrate our accomplishments and our unique personalities while reflecting on a great year.  I have truly loved getting to know each of your children.  They are all so very special to me and will always hold a place in my heart.  Thank you for sharing them with me this year.

Sealed envelope with the Classy Awards

On Friday we were received a read carpet welcoming to the Classy Awards and the World Premier of the 2018-2019 Wonderful Whales Movie.  We were each announced individually to the red carpet where we got our picture take by the paparazzi.

Everyone is celebrated at the Classy Awards!  We all have talents that we need to recognized.  When the award was announced we came up to the stage, accepted our award, and gave a little speech.  At the end of the ceremony we each took turns posing on the stage with our awards.  

After the award ceremony, we eagerly awaited to watch the premiere of the our class movie.  We even got to eat some popcorn!

Thank you all for a WONDERFUL WHALE year!
